Margot’s Trinket Box

Scottish Diaspora Tapestry

Road trip! The tapestry was on exhibition in New Glasgow at the New Glasgow Street Theatre, and several of our members took the opportunity to go view it. The work itself was created to illustrate the histories of Scottish migrants throughout the world, and the vividly coloured embroidery on display was certainly inspiring.

Stitch Magazine #1o2

Whenever the new Stitch magazine arrives, it gets passed around the worktable and eagerly perused by everyone.  It’s always a treat to be the first one to borrow this latest issue to really get into the articles and projects.  The magazine is full of interesting and accessible needlework, ranging from the very traditional – stumpwork and kogin – to the very modern, combining needlework with watercolour.  This publication comes highly recommended!
